Individuals often undergo cosmetic treatments to refresh their skin and diminish the signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, and volume loss.
Fortunately, there’s a wide range of safe and effective non-surgical options that can rejuvenate aging skin and restore a youthful appearance.
Here are the eight best cosmetic procedures for aging skin.
Botox is a cosmetic injectable for moderate to severe facial wrinkles, and is often used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
It works by inhibiting muscle contraction and limiting facial expressions that cause the development and worsening of wrinkles, creases, and folds in the skin.
2. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can be used in a variety of ways to address facial aging.
They can augment lips, improve contour irregularities, reduce cheek hollowness, smooth creases and wrinkles, fill scars, and decrease or eliminate shadows under the eyes.
3. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that combats fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.
The type of acid(s) used and strength can allow customization to each patient’s aesthetic concerns and goals.
For patients interested in an affordable way to achieve softer and smoother skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and improve the penetration and effects of skincare products, microdermabrasion is an excellent anti-aging option.
It exfoliates the top layer of the skin and also infuses nourishing serums, and is typically performed as a series of six sessions.
HydraFacial can offer patients powerful results, without any side effects or downtime. This facial resurfacing treatment cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates skin in as little as 30 minutes.
It delivers oxygenated and vitamin infused water through a wand, removes dead skin cells and debris with a dermaplaning tool, and uses its vortex technology to suction all impurities from the skin.
Microneedling is a non-laser treatment that stimulates collagen an elastin to rejuvenate aging skin.
More specifically, it uses surgical grade needles to create tiny punctures in the skin and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.
7. Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing devices use light-based energy to create controlled thermal damage in the epidermis and dermis.
These microinjuries promote a wound healing effect and remodeling of aging skin.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) emits a broadband light that targets and eliminates hyperpigmentation and redness from the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Patients with sun spots, spider veins, rosacea, and broken blood vessels can greatly benefit from a series of three-or-four treatments at monthly intervals.
